  Israel arrested 337,000 Palestinians since 1987

December 10, 2018

Israel has arrested 337,000 Palestinians since the start of the First 
Intifada in 8 December 1987, the Palestine Prisoners’ Centre for Studies 
said yesterday.

In spite of the arrests, the centre’s spokesperson Riyadh Al-Ashqar 
said, the occupation has failed to achieve its goals of suppressing the 
Palestinian resistance and its efforts to liberate Palestine.

Israel has arrests Palestinians on an almost daily basis, he added.

According to the report, occupation forces arrested 210,000 Palestinians 
between 1987 
and 1994, when the Palestinian Authority was established 

Israel built and opened a number of prisons in order to administer the 
detentions. The most famous is Al-Naqab Prisoner, which is located in 
the middle of the desert and which hosted tens of thousands of the 
Palestinian detainees.

Between 1994 and 2000, the Israeli occupation arrested 10,000 
Palestinians, 97,000 others were detained between 2000 
and 2015 
Since 2015 until today, Israeli occupation forces have arrested 20,000 

The report reiterated that detainees’ medical needs are ignored and as a 
result they suffer negligence and abuse in Israeli jails.

Al-Ashqar said that there are 27 Palestinians prisoners inside the 
Israeli jail who have been serving sentences since before the creation 
of the Palestinian Authority in 1994.

They are, he said, the prisoners who Israel refused to release prior to 
the anticipated resumption of peace talks in 2014, meaning negotiations 
never got underway
